Quick Card with The Gangs All Meer

Just a quick project today to highlight the cute little Meerkat family from The Gangs All Meer stamp set, I love their cheeky little faces.

I’ve gone with a colur scheme of Mango Melody, Pear Pizzazz and Granny Apple Green for my card base. I’ve used a piece of Pear Pizzazz as my background and stamped the little catus plants all over in Granny Apple Green just to give them more pop.

I added a strip of the Textured Weave Ribbon in Granny Apple Green across the top third of my card before adhering my Meerkat circle.

I coloured the Meerkat with Stampin’ Blends in Light Crumb Cake for their tummies and Light Soft Suede for the rest of their bodies. They are stood on a mix of Light Pumkin Pie and Light Mango Melody so it hopefully looks like sand.

This cute little stamp set is available until the end of March as a Sale-A-Bration freebie, so just place an order of £45 or more and you too could be stamping with these cuties.

Wedding Card with Parisians Blooms

Happy Belated New Year everyone, sorry I’ve been away longer than I was expecting but I needed a complete crafting break. I’m back now and raring to show some projects I’ve been working on over the pass few days using some of the gorgeous new products from out new January/June Mini Catalogue and also Sale-A-Bration which is already well under way.

For today’s project I’m sharing a card I made for my cousins wedding at the beginning of this year. I chose to base the card around the papers in the Parisians Blossoms Specialty Designer Paoer because its stunning and I thought the champagne foil accents on the flowers would work well for the wedding theme.

The greeting comes from the Last A Lifetime stamp set and was stamped in Petal Pink on a matt die cut from the Printed Labels Dies. I added some of the Petal Pink Metallic Edged Ribbon across the top third of the card before adhering my greeting. I then added three fussy cut flowers onto the card and added a Champagne Rhinestone to their centres to finish the card off.

Farewell to the Christmastime Is Here Suite

Today is the last day that the products in the Christmastime Is Here Suite are available to purchase so I thought I’d share one last project with you. As most of us will already have our cards made for this year I wanted to share a quick idea using the gorgeous paper as most of the detail.

I’ve used the Holly pattern as a background for this card and simply stamped the Merry Christmas from the Christmas rose stamp set onto the largest label form the Roses dies.

A simple strip of the Poppy Parade Textured Stripe Ribbon across the middle of the card and a couple of springs of Holly stamped from the Christmas gleaming stamp set finish the card.

Simple Foiled Merry Christmas Card

If you’ve not yet finished making your Christmas cards or you need to whip up a few extra really quick then this is the card for you.

I used the From Our House to Yours stamp set to create this little scene. The stamps are photopolymer so they line up really easily making stamping a scene quick and enjoyable. If your making a lot the using the Stampatratus is a good idea.

I stamped my scene on the 6cm square dies from the Layering Squares Dies and matted it onto the scalloped version which is slightly bigger.

To make this card really pop I’ve used some of the Noble Peacock Foil and run it through the Hammered Embossing folder which is part of the Brightly Gleaming Suite. I love this embossing folder as it creates a subtle but really effective background. I’ve also added a little bit of Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Striped Ribbon across the top of the card behind my little scene.

To change up this card you can easily change the foil colour and embossing folder to create many different background effects.

Tailored Tag Patchwork Background Christmas Card

I’ve wanted to make a card with a patchwork background created with the Tailored Tag punch ever since I bought which was, a long time ago. Finally I’ve pulled out the Christmastime Is Here Speciality DSP and created this christmas card.

I used 18 punch out tags in four different designs, but you can use any number of patterns you like, just try not to put the same patterns next to each other when you form your patchwork. I adhered these by using Liquid Glue on the card base.

I added a little swirl of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon to add some interest and then placed the large label from the Roses dies over the top with the greeting stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I finished with some of my favourite Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

The Christmastime Is Her suite is only available until the end of the month so if you still thinking about purchasing these products you only have a few days left, I’m just debating how many extra packets of Gold Glitter Enamel Dots I should order.
